-

In the last three years, Revolving Doors has transformed financially. Indeed, 2017/18 has been a breakthrough year in demonstrating our success and its sustainability: for the third year running we generated a surplus, achieving 50% of our income from social enterprise. And, for the first time since 2012, we took turnover beyond £700,000. To continue to deliver this exceptional performance, we need a similarly exceptional Head of Business Development. This is a key and exciting post within Revolving Doors. We are looking for an experienced and dynamic professional, able to use their expertise, strategic knowledge and business development skills to effect change for people facing severe social exclusion. You will oversee income generation through both grants fundraising and social enterprise. You will be an excellent oral and written communicator, able to write rapidly and persuasively rapidly for a variety of audiences, notably for both grant proposals and commercial bids. You will also enjoy building working relationships with donors, clients, partners and, of course, across the team. The role can be fast paced: you will be motivated by and respond well to deadlines. In return, you will have autonomy, a varied working week and real opportunity to shape Revolving Doors' direction and to contribute to its ongoing sustainability.
